LeDaro: George Zimmerman and Shellie Zimmerman

Uncanny resemblance. Especially eyes and the stare.

LeDaro: George Zimmerman’s wife called police for help

Zimmerman got away with murder of Trayvon Martin and gun has become a little toy for him.

“Florida police are investigating a dispute between George Zimmerman and his wife Shellie, who called cops and said he had his hand on his gun, an official said.”

LeDaro: Zimmerman helps family escape overturned car in Sanford, Fla

Oh! Really! It sounds like a made up story to show that Zimmerman is a great guy. There is no picture of the overturned car or passengers he saved. Maybe a creature like this one below was seen in Florida and Zimmerman adapted it as a pet. Pathetic attempt.

drive-by planet: Zimmerman travesty and the profiling of black youth in America

 

The acquittal of George Zimmerman on charges of murdering Trayvon Martin may have met the requirements of law in the eyes of some Americans, but was nonetheless a travesty of justice. The not-guilty verdict saw the self-appointed watchman-on-a-mission walk away a free man – his hands forever stained with the blood of 17-year-old . . . → Read More: drive-by planet: Zimmerman travesty and the profiling of black youth in America

Politics, Re-Spun: Zimmerman and Alexander: Racism and Sexism in America

Can you handle the contradictions?

I’ve been seen things in twitter for the last few days that puts some grotesque perspective on the American culture.

I’m actually quite speechless:

Two Florida towns, 125 miles apart. Two people firing weapons at unarmed aggressors, purportedly in self-defense.

The Canadian Progressive: In the US, an “open season on black boys” after Zimmerman acquittal

In the US, an unarmed black teenager, Trayvon Martin, is murdered in cold blood. The jury finds the alleged murderer, Florida neighbourhood watchman George Zimmerman, not guilty. President Barack Obama calls for “calm reflection”. He mentions neither “George Zimmerman” nor the issue at the heart . . . → Read More: The Canadian Progressive: In the US, an “open season on black boys” after Zimmerman acquittal

THE FIFTH COLUMN: The George Zimmerman Verdict: How Does an Aggressor Successfully Argue Self Defence

After my initial shock at hearing the verdict and my attempt to rationalize it I have further reflected on the verdict.

Perhaps it all comes down to the difference between Canadian and Floridian/American attitudes to vigilantism.

I consider myself to be a reasonable man and my interpretation of self defence does not allow for an . . . → Read More: THE FIFTH COLUMN: The George Zimmerman Verdict: How Does an Aggressor Successfully Argue Self Defence

THE FIFTH COLUMN: The George Zimmerman Verdict and The British Justice System

The not guilty verdicts in the George Zimmerman trial for the murder of Travyon Martin may be a result of the British criminal justice system (that is shared by both Canada and the United States) and it’s most important principle that it is better that the guilty go free than the innocent be convicted. One of the earliest expressionless of this principle was Blackstone’s formulation: "It is . . . → Read More: THE FIFTH COLUMN: The George Zimmerman Verdict and The British Justice System

LeDaro: Zimmerman Walks

An unarmed black teen is dead, and his killer – who is white – walks free? What is wrong with Florida? Meanwhile, in another Florida case, a black woman who fired warning shots to protect against an allegedly abusive husband received 20 years in jail.

LeDaro: George Zimmerman will be free on bail

It is sad. This man is a cold-blooded murderer. Maybe it helped that his father was a judge. To me it looks like first justice denied and now justice delayed.

George Zimmerman creates a web page

Here’s a screen grab of the page.

The mind boggles. The photo features the defaced The Frank W. Hale Jr. Black Cultural Center at Ohio State University. If anyone had any doubts about Zimmerman being a racist, he just answered their question.

Double whammy against George Zimmerman – screams of "help" on tape not his. EMS reports no serious injuries to Zimmerman.

There you have it. Pretty much case closed.

1. Two audio experts have ruled out George Zimmerman as the voice yelling “help” on the tapes.

2. The medical reports are in. No serious injuries to Zimmerman.

Video of George Zimmerman post-kill – unscathed. Trayvon Martin’s hands showed no signs of struggle.

"Fucking coons" a "term of endearment"? The smearing of Trayvon Martin.

Right media’s new job: no brown Skittles allowed!

Trayvon Martin, a victim in death as he was in life on the night he was killed by an overzealous and perhaps racist self-professed cop of the streets, is being vilified and murdered all over again by the right, the media and the assassin’s lawyer.

At least Gerarldo Rivera preceded this outlandish claim with “I think”. Otherwise, he would have been taken away the men in the white coats. Just more Fox News craziness. Sad.

"Stand Your Ground": the insanity of a country with a lust for guns

The Trayvon Martin murder is not an isolated case. It’s the reality of a country obsessed with firearms and violence. It’s a place where people hide in their bedrooms away from people outside crying for help.
